Member's BYOB Class- Creating Straight Wheels That Last

Creating Straight Wheels That Last: Wheel Truing/Straightening

(Recommended 1 time a year or anytime you see a wobble in the wheel)

Most wheels have 28-36 spokes that are performing a tremendous balancing act to keep your rims straight. When one or more of these spokes becomes out of balance, your wheel goes out of lateral true (side to side) and radial true (up and down). A wheel slightly out of true will gradually can become more out of true through regular riding, and significantly out of true if you hit big bump or curb. In this class we’ll teach how to laterally and radially true your wheels. Everyone will leave this class with 2 straighter, longer lasting wheels.

*Please bring only one bike or 2 wheels per member
